How do I fix msconfig not working?
To repair the msconfig not found error, you may need to manually scan the file system for errors first, then scan your own system for viruses, and then co-scan and repair the damaged ones system files. After that, you will probably need to copy the msconfig utility to your system.
Read this page to see how it works on Windows 7, 8, Vista and XP:
Delete recent Windows XP and Vista documents
First, right-click on the “Launch” button and select “Properties”:
You are now in the Start Menu and Taskbar Properties dialog box. You should already be on the Start Menu tab. Continue by clicking the “Customize” button.
Basically, you’ll see a Recent Documents section. Click “Clear List” to clear the latest list of most documents. If you don’t want Windows to keep track of your recent files, uncheckthe List of My Recently Opened Documents check box. That’s it!
Delete recent Windows 10 and 8 documents
Why I cant open my msconfig?
Try this: Type CMD in the “Search Systems and Files” box, right-click on the CMD icon and select “Run as administrator”. When Windows opens, type sfc /scannow and press the appropriate Enter key on your keyboard so they can scan for missing or corrupt multilevel files. Thanks for the information.
If you right-click the Start Menu, select Properties, click the entire Start Menu tab, and then just click the Customize button, the Recent Items checkbox will appear at the bottom.
When you return to the Settings dialog where you enabled Recent Documents, you will see two strategies for resizing the Start Menu below: The item we are interested in by “number” is among the Recent Items to allow display in Jump Lists. Go ahead and set this to 0 so that Windows no longer displays my list of recently opened documents. If you right-click a program outside the taskbar, the list will disappear.
Windows still retains some history. To prevent Windows from opening the whole history, right-click Start, go to Properties again to help you, and click the Start tab. This time, don’t select “Customize”!
You can see the “Save” checkbox below the coprivacy and existing recently opened items on the start menu and taskbar. Uncheck this box and then Windows will no longer save our own history.
